Cnt''Ki:N Stcaltng. We have received re-ceived a communication from a gen tleman re.-iding in tho Fith Wafd, complaining that some persons not having the fear of the law before their i eyes, have been in tho habit of cbas-! cbas-! iiiir oil" his chickens under the pretense that they thought some chickens belonging be-longing to them had got mixed up with hK and intimates that this is all a prelcn.se, their object being to obtain poultry without paying for it, as owing to the non-arrival of certain long expected ex-pected "appropriations" they aro probably prob-ably out of funds. This is a poor business and such gentlemen (?) should curb their chicken propensities till they eau obtain the luxury lawfully. Chicken stealing is a contemptible habit which we understand is quite extensively indulged in just now in other parts of the city. These miserable thieves should be careful, this has never been a healthy country for such, gentry. Citizens, lock up your chicken coops, the days of leaving your properly prop-erly around looso are past. We have a new order of things. Civilization has come to us.
